I bought this the other day at LCBO (in Toronto). The label reads as the subject line above states. It's a green label. In searching the bottle images though (all American clearly), the label is different, it reads: George Dickel Rye Whisky. I can't tell if the 95% rye mash (or 95% rye) wording is on that label, presumably it is, and the reviews online (e.g. Chuck's) refer to the 95% rye, 5% barley malt grist. One review though (linked in the comments to Chuck's 2012 posting on Dickel Rye) states it has a strong oaky nose and oak is prominent in the taste.
My bottle has virtually no nose, and little oak in the taste.
What I'm wondering is, are we getting a non-rye whiskey in Canada, i.e., rye mash whiskey aged in reused barrels but (presumably) filtered with the Tullahoma chilled charcoal?
Or are both bottles the same with a change in labelling for Canada? But why would we need a change of labelling? At first I thought perhaps because "rye whisky" here means Canadian whisky, yet we also have at LCBO Knob Creek rye and Bulleit rye. Bulleit rye states that its whiskey is "American", so a point of difference there, but I'm pretty sure Knob Creek rye on the shelves here states: Knob Creek rye whiskey.
Any thoughts? I'll try to upload a picture of my bottle.
